Enabling Each Other

Recently, Jesse and I were practicing the snatch aerial for a tutorial video. The release was feeling slow to me and the landing had mixed results. Come to find out, Jesse needed more stretch time into the aerial (i.e. 5,6,7,8) while I was giving her 7,8. I was thinking she didn’t need a long stretch because I don’t need one. I adapted, the release was quick and we were nailing the snatch. It was reinforced once more than I can still improve my communication and that each aerial partner is different with their needs. We both achieved success by enabling the other. So let’s help each other out!
